This is Larta
Connecting People to Drive Innovation
Larta Institute is a leading “innovation hub” based in the U.S. with
the mission of vastly improving the transition of scientific and technological breakthroughs
from the lab to the marketplace, where they can solve pressing issues, enhance economic
opportunities and better people's lives.
How We Do It
As a private non-profit professional services firm, we design and
implement commercialization programs and provide policy advice for our clients across
the globe to maximize the commercial potential of publicly funded R&D in life
sciences, cleantech, agriculture, chemicals, advanced materials, electronics and
information technology. Commercialization programs designed by Larta nurture the
innovation ecosystem to support entrepreneurs in addressing viable market opportunities.
As a trusted partner to both the investment and corporate communities,
we are able to establish the relevant connections necessary to bridge the gap between
an innovative technology and an economically-viable product or service. We elevate
the market- and investor-readiness of the emerging entrepreneurs they support.
Our unique networked model allows us to aggregate and allocate resources virtually
to be called upon on a regular basis - an essential evolution toward the most effective
and efficient management of innovation assets in any region. Our network includes
subject matter experts, seasoned entrepreneurs, investors and industry players within
a broad, ever-expanding network, including an
Industry Advisory Board
of 50+ senior technology scouts/evaluators from Fortune 1000 companies seeking access
to innovative new business opportunities.
Larta Institute was founded in 1993 to identify, nurture, and promote promising
early-stage high-tech and life science companies in the Los Angeles area. Since,
Larta has expanded its business, amplifying its sphere of influence throughout the
world. Since 1993, Larta has helped over 3,000 entrepreneurs from 17 countries in
developing strategic relationships and raising over $1.5 billion in capital.
